Mariah Carey Forever
Described as “An opulent floral, Forever reflects a modern image of glamor with its rich notes and exquisite packaging.” Developed by perfumer Olivier Gillotin; the notes include neroli, lotus blossom, dewy green apple, tuberose, gardenia, white musk and exotic woods. The title is from a 1996 Mariah Carey song of the same name; Forever will debuted at around the same time as Carey’s album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, the one with the dig at Eminem, “Obsessed” – that she back pedaled on when she realized that Em has no shame and released ”The Warning.” Fittingly, forever is also about how long Nick will be aggravated over Em’s relationship with Mariah’s stomach. It will be available in 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($42-65) and in 15 ml Parfum ($250). Available at department stores such as Macy’s, as well as Macys.com About $50. (Sheesh 34 bars and he ain’t even a third through??)
CIRCUS fantasy BRITNEY SPEARS™
The deal here is to check out our article on FANTASY OUTFITS HERE and then include CIRCUS fantasy BRITNEY SPEARS™ as the “Gift” gift and the fantasy circus costumes as the “Indoor Sports” gift. The perfume gets you off the hook, while the outfits just, “Get you Off.” The scent is described as, “blue peony, water-lily and addictive red sweetheart orchid take the limelight with delicious sensations and exhilarating temptations” – fair enough, but the costumes are the real game changer here. They slip right in under the radar. Available at department stores such as Macy’s, as well as Macys.com About $40 (Dude remember this little number from back in the day?)
Paris Hilton Siren
Her sixth fragrance for women dropped this July. Siren was developed by perfumer Honorine Blanc. The fragrance notes feature mandarin, apricot nectar, frangipani, honeysuckle, coconut orchid, water lily, vanilla beans, sandalwood and creamy musk. Now normally the only creamy musk I allow around my girlfriend is my own, but in Paris’ case I’ll make an exception. Paris Hilton Siren will be available in 50 ($45) and 100 ($55) ml Eau de Parfum and in matching body products. The bottle design is meant to evoke a mermaid’s tail. Good thing it wasn’t named “Big Black Adonis” (hey – does this make you want to eat hamburgers?) Buy it at Macy’s – In fact, here’s a gift pack!
Jessica Simpson Fancy Love
Jessica “Is this chicken or tuna?” Simpson Fancy Love is described as a warm, romantic floral. Fancy Love was developed by perfumers Yves Cassar, Celine Barel, Pascal Gaurin and Clement Gavarry, and the notes feature goji leaf, peach blossom, bergamot, blush champagne, lotus blossom, peony, plumeria, jasmine, rose, creamy amber, blonde woods, musk and patchouli. Personally, I think “Jessica Simpson Kareoke” or “Daddy Repellent” are names that would have sold much better. Jessica Simpson Failure Marriage er –Fancy Love will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum and in matching body lotion at Macy’s.
With Love…Hilary Duff
With Love … Hilary Duff is “An expression of love in all its forms and dimensions (Wow is that what Bukake smells like?) especially the breathtaking excitement of romance and the feeling you get when you create something beautiful, straight from the heart”. Available at ElizabethArden.com about $55
The notes in Wrapped with Love were inspired by Hilary Duff’s fun and flirtatious side – (ok but she she really have a perfume to sell for each side? Which one is for her back side? Because I’d like to apply for the Applicator Job.) The result is a delectable fragrance with a signature scent –a creamy backdrop showcasing juicy and succulent notes. Available at ElizabethArden.com about $35
Badgley Mischka Couture
Described as “A floriental woody scent, a luxurious blend of rich, sensual fruits joined with exquisite feminine florals and seductive musks.” It’s glamorous (I guess. Not sure what qualifies it, but OK), elegant (packaging looks it) and an affordable way (Cough!! Affordable?!!? At $90 a bottle?) to bring these amazing designers into your home. Available at Neiman Marcus. A c-note dropping $90 . . .hey it’s Neiman Marcus, not Walmart. If you’re not sure she’s a keeper, read this, and if she is, splurge once in a while (I said splurge! Not Spooge!)
